Nuggets of investment wisdom
Investors, especially personal investors, often ignore large parts of the big economic picture, rues Robert Cole in ‘The Unwritten Laws of Finance & Investment’ (www.vivagroupindia.com). He notes that many investors prefer to focus attention on specific issues that seem likely to affect individual shares, or on narrow comparisons such as the difference between the interest rates payable on deposits at rival banks. “It is as if investors assume they can do nothing to take account of the big picture and are somehow obliged to assume – or hope that the general environment will be benign.” PV of the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
